During the recent Security Summit, we made available Windows XP SP2 RC1.

Well last week, there was an update. As Andrew Coates mentioned over and over and over again in the MSDN Update Session he delivered , we really encourage developers to take a close look at Windows XP SP2 and see what effect is has on their application.  For reference, we have Tony Goodhew's XP SP2 Blog which covers this topic in great detail, as well as the MSDN Developer Center.

You can get Release Candidate 2 at

Windows Update will also get these bits to you.

[Now Playing: Jennifer Saunders - Shrek 2 - Holding Out for a Hero [*] (03:59)]

  • I recently had a conversation about SP2 from a development perspective. Me as infrastructure consultant, I was way out of my comfort zone listening to DCOM and ActiveX questions with regard to SP2. Fortunately, I found this dedicated blog by Tone Goodhew, Product Manager in the Developer Division where he specifically writes about DCOM and SP2.
  • Um... Hiya. ^.^;; I know this is gonna sound really strange... but do you think you could send me the Jennifer Saunders version of Holding Out for a Hero? My AIM is Seppuku Charms... I'd really appreciate it. I know it's weird--I'm a complete stranger, after all--but thanks anyway.
